ROATAN INSTITUTE OF DEEPSEA EXPLORATION


You have the rare opportunity to travel in a one-of-a-kind machine to another world and come face-to-face with life forms beyond imagination. Captain Karl Stanley's deep diving submarine Idabel, based on the Caribbean island of Roatan, Honduras, is the greatest underwater adventure in the world. Idabel will take you deeper into the unexplored Cayman Trench than most people have ever ventured— illuminating depths down to 2,000 feet (610 meters) below the surface. Through the submarine's large PLEXIGLASS viewing bubble you will see a wide variety of deep sea animal life rarely encountered by humans. Idabel docks at Half Moon Bay in West End, Roatan, in the Bay Islands of Honduras, but Tranquilseas can arrange a trip for you if you wish. More information about the Roatan Institute of Deepsea Exploration can be found at their website.
